I need some uplifting and prayers. I'm going to school to become a CNA. My family is very happy with my accomplishments. My boss at work despises me going because I would have to leave work early. I'm not getting the support from work that I thought I would of got. Me and my boyfriend broke up In August and a month later I started school September 14th, It was hard. I'm struggling with that everyday and it's a VERY confusing situation. And on top of all that I found out my Grandma is at Stage 4 Heart Failure, She's been in and out of the hospital. With school and relationship problems now I worry each and everyday about my Grandma, She's not just my Grandma she's my best friend, she has been there through thick and thin and has helped me sooo much, and I'm thankful to have such a great Grandma in my life. I can't concentrate on my schooling at all. If I can't pass certain test then I can't continue, Health care is where I want to be, and It's where I'm at now. Some days are better than others. Lately I just feel like giving up, I'm 21 years old and I've gone through soooo much in the past and now I'm trying to be strong and get through this. But it's not the easiest.

Please pray for my daughter, she hit a dark time last year and broke things off with a great boyfriend. She is better now and is trying to work things out with him but he is hesitant. Please pray that he sees the changes on her and give her a chance. She is heartbroken over this.

My daughter is in her first trimester of a pregnancy. She and her husband have a nearly 2-year-old little boy who was born 6 weeks early. They miscarried several times before their son and at least once since they started trying for number 2. Because of her history, she is deemed a high-risk pregnancy, so they are always monitoring her. Initially the current pregnancy was considered a "chemical" pregnancy in that her hormone levels were elevated indicating being pregnant, but not at levels that said it was going to be a successful pregnancy. Without an obvious miscarriage occurring, she followed up with her physician and her hormone levels were checked again. The key lab values were up (but not at the rate they should be). When she went in for an ultrasound this past week and had labs drawn again, a key hormone value was up again indicating that the pregnancy was still in tact; however, upon doing the ultrasound, they couldn't find the embryo in the uterus. Her doctor now suspects that this might be an ectopic pregnancy (a fertilized egg that has attached itself to a space outside the uterus, such as in the fallopian tube). and wants her to have an injection that will aid in stopping the embryo's further growth. If it is an ectopic pregnancy in the fallopian tube and the body doesn't stop the pregnancy on its own, then there is a risk that the embryo will explode the tube and could lead to permanent infertility. My daughter is a teacher at a Christian school. She is a great Mom and wife. Her struggle with fertility has strengthened her faith ... and her response to the doctor's news yesterday was to do a Bible study on trusting God. Please pray for God's hand involvement in every aspect of this situation as being obvious to all.
